Found what you are looking for in the catalogue? Viewing articles should now be easy, but there are some common error messages that may get in your way.
Once you have read our guide to searching for ejournals, and have chosen your preferred search option, it should all be plain sailing, but you may find that you see one of the following:
EZProxy error message: (click on images to enlarge)
Fix: copy and paste the error message into an email to email@example.com with the journal title and URL. Once we get this information we can fix this for you.
‘Subscription required’ error messages and paywalls: (just a few examples, each website will differ)
Fix: double check our holdings (Journal Search). If the Journal Search holdings show we should have access to the article you are looking for then email us with the details of the error message, we’ll need to investigate further. If the holdings show that we do not have access to the volume you require then you can check for print holdings within the University via iDiscover or make a recommendation that an electronic subscription should be purchased here.
If there are no electronic or print copies available within the University then you can try to get hold of a copy via Inter-Library Loans. Please ask your department or faculty librarians about any I.L.L. facilities available to you or read information about the University Library’s I.L.L. department here.
“File missing: docs/deny.htm”. error message and Raven eresources access permissions
